    Happy 46th birthday today (Tuesday) to an Olympic champion who competed in the same event during three Olympic Games.

    This champion won Olympic gold in the second of those three Games and was injured in the first and last of those three Olympics.

    Our birthday athlete's first sport was basketball.

    You might know a person with the same initials as our birthday athlete because this person was born about 34 years before our mystery athlete and became famous as a performer.

    The performer with the same initials as our birthday person came out with an album about two years before our birthday athlete was born.

    Did you know that this birthday athlete won one World Championship gold medal and one World Championship bronze medal?

    Enough clues for now. I think you will know our birthday athlete for this second Tuesday of September.

    Should the first word be Weißer?

    Yes, but I wasn't sure how to do that "B" on my computer.

    Or you can find it on the web and do a copy and paste.

    In my Mac, I can also press the S key for a moment for getting a menu with several variants, including ß.

    The famous performer with the same initials has to be the most useless clue that I've ever read.

    The title relates to the performer.

    I happen to know the answer (having sort of looked it up), but I've no idea what the subject title or that clue mean.

    Ok, the performer, with the same initials as the birthday person, wrote a song which became a very popular song a few years before our birthday athlete was born. I didn't give you the name of the song in English, but maybe I should have. The athlete and the performer (sharing the same initials) are the same sex.
